5 Sweet Stand Ideas For Any Party
2020 has been a solitary year for many of us. But with a potential end to lockdowns and social distancing in sight, the party planner within many of us has awakened. We’re all planning our first full-blown get together to ring in the new year, or making arrangements for special occasions in 2021 when we can relax with our nearest and dearest.
And what brings people together and puts smiles on faces better than a pick ‘n’ mix stand?
A sweet treat is more than just a tasty snack. It can be a mouthful of nostalgia, or a comforting hug in a brightly coloured wrapper. With the right sweet stand ideas, you can make your party really come alive. Whether you’re thinking about sweet stands for weddings, birthday parties or one of those wonderful, spur-of-the-moment “just because” parties, you’ll want to include these crowd-pleasing tasty treats.
Let’s take a look at some ever-popular sweet stand ideas for parties…
1. Jelly beans
They’re juicy. They’re delicious. They’re packed with flavour, and they’re oh-so-moreish! A handful of jelly beans is an essential part of any self-respecting pick ‘n’ mix stand. As well as their myriad flavours, their bright and cheerful rainbow colours add a wonderful visual sparkle to your sweet stands. And because they’re gelatine-free, even your vegetarian guests can enjoy them!
2. Cola bottles
Sweet stands for parties are incomplete without this beloved childhood classic. Cola bottles are an extremely popular treat that many of us remember fondly from our playground years. Those halcyon days when we gleefully chomped on these chewy cola flavoured treats from tightly clutched paper bags. The sweet that fuelled your childhood play can be just as much fun in your grown-up years.
A great pick ‘n’ mix stand isn’t just about flavour. It’s also about the visuals! It should be a beautiful collage of colours and textures as well as a marvellous melange of flavours. And when it comes to combining colour, spectacle and taste, you can’t go wrong with these delicious chewy mermaids. These gummy treats are a delicious and spectacular addition to any sweet stand for parties. And they’re also vegan and gluten-free!
4. Heart Throbs
Can you feel the love tonight? Your guests will, with these soft and delectable jelly and foam heart throbs! These love heart-shaped sweets are absolutely essential when building sweet stands for weddings, valentines parties, or any other time you want to show your guests how much you love them! These yummy treats will allow you to share the love at any social gathering.
5. Black Jacks
Another nostalgic treat that we all loved in our younger years, give your guests the gift of nostalgia when you bring Black Jacks to your sweet stand. Wrapped in wax paper (just like you remember) and with a tangy liquorice and aniseed flavour, these old school favourites are perfect for sharing with your old friends. An awesome choice for retro or Back To School themed sweet stands, or anywhere old friends get together!
Which tasty treats will you add to your sweet stand?
It’s a medical fact that sweets make us happy! As well as giving us a “sugar rush”, the bright, colourful and cheerful appearance of a sweet stand is a treat for the eyes. And the taste of nostalgic flavours can also reawaken the fun-loving youngster in all of us. Choose from these tasty classics and many more when you create your own pick ‘n’ mix stand bundle!
